3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought a bomber of this last weekend and sampled it today. Light amber color, nice head, aroma is mild citrusy hops with malty, yeasty taste. The balance on this is perfect and I’d love to find it on tap. DB makes good beer - I’ve been impressed with the quality of everything I’ve had from them. Nothing outlandish, just clean, well made, yummy beer.

Draft - Right balance of hops that is not overpowering yet you can still taste the bitterness from the hops. Not much sweetness, very little malt to balance out the hops. Lots of citrus flavor on this one. Kinda has a “water” taste to it.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a thick eggshell head that leaves heavy lacing. Malty, fruity aroma is rather sweet. Malty flavor has an overtone of woody hops that is slightly bitter. Texture is fizzy and fairly firm; you can feel it all the way down the hatch. Catch one!

Refreshing and very crisp, with some complexity from the hop and yeast combination. A little complex, enough to hold your interest, and medium weight and length on the palate.

6/22/14. Draft at Brew. Pours golden with a thin head. Very mild nose. Starts with malts dominating but the hops creep up. Not much of a citrus profile in the hops.

12oz can, which I’m pretty sure I got from Perfect Pour. Clear golden orange color. Off-white head, with good retention. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Nice moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light kind of zesty sweet. Good citrusy hop aroma, light bit of pine, with a very clean bready malt bill. Solid, clean satisfying pale ale. Good one to enjoy with my Skyline.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear golden color with a thin head. Aroma is slightly skunky with apples and pale malts. Taste is very smooth and malty with a good amount of hops. Slightly sweet overall but the pine hops give it a nice balance. Overall pretty good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the can it pours a very bright, clear, pale amber. There is a little head and a lot of crackling carbonation. Grassy, musty hops in the nose. The flavor isn’t great. Not bad, but not great. Slightly sweet at the front, then tart, hops in the finish. Unfortunately there is also something metallic in the finish. Sulfuric, maybe. Maybe it’s because this beer was out of a can, but it wasn’t just in my head. There is something in the close that I didn’t really like.
